Charming house in a village
Our home is a charming barn of 180m2 converted into a dwelling situated in the countryside in the green Périgord, 30km west of Périgueux and 10mn from the amenities at Ribérac. Numerous possibilities for sporting and cultural activities.
Our house is large and situated in a very quiet country setting, near a small village of 250 inhabitants. It can easily accommodate 6 or even 7 people. 4 bedrooms: 1 double bed 140 with bath in the bedroom, 1 double bed 160, 1 bed 130. A single bed in a small room. It is equipped with all amenities, has a fireplace and a new heated salt water swimming pool of 11X3m. The functional dining kitchen is set in a large veranda which also includes a small sitting area. It communicates with a large living room of about 40 m2. There are two toilets, a bathroom and a shower room. There are two mezzanines: one with an office area, the other with a piano and a second TV and HIFI area.
The exterior has two terraces that can be used depending on the amount of sunlight, one with a view of the valley where deer, foxes and various birds can often be seen. The 1800 m2 grounds are partly flowered, partly lawned with a robot mower. A heated swimming pool of 11 X 3m is waiting for you...
Our cat Felix would be to keep and feed, he is very docile and loves cuddles.
